In older films (pre-1960's) MANY, many bit parts were played by actors not credited; perhaps the 'rules' changed (SAG, etc.)? An example is Gig Young. In his distinctive voice, he has one line, "How's the ice?", in the after-skating scene, about 26 minutes into the film The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942)

Significance of photograph?Edit

The current photograph is rather meaningless without an explanatory caption. I assume it's supposed to be a group of extras on the set of a film or TV show? (talk) 04:54, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
